✴️MN 70 (at) Kīṭāgiri:
“Reverends, the Buddha abstains from eating at night, and so does the monk Saṅgha.
Doing so, they find that they’re healthy and well, nimble, strong, and living comfortably.
You too should abstain from eating at night." ...
When they said this, the monks who followed Assaji and Punabbasuka said to them:
“Reverends, we eat in the evening, the morning, and at the wrong time of day.
Doing so, we find that we’re healthy and well, nimble, strong, and living comfortably.
Why should we give up what we see in the present to chase after what takes time?
